Tune—Always Words by—Maxine Rosenbaum Page Thirty-eight Franklin, Mass. Through these welcoming portals we entered as Freshmen on September 8, 1943. We tried our wings to emerge after four years capped and gowned. We are now prepared to face the world as full grown birds. One of the pleasantest memories certainly, reviews the night of our first party, the annual Freshman Acquaintance Party. During that day we were well initiated and prepared for this great event. The Seniors gave us a royal welcome! They made us feel at home. Mr. Frazer, better known to us as, “Doc”, who was acting as principal during Mr. Doherty’s absence, called a Freshman Assembly for the purpose of electing class officers for our first year. We elected the following: President . Raymond Ludwin Vice-President . Horace Mazzone Secretary . Claire Rossetti Treasurer . Jeannette Spencer Miss Beane was chosen our class advisor. As Sophomores we were launched into the age of wisdom. We were well named because we really were wise Sophomores. The Sadie Hawkins Day Dance on November 7, 1944 seemed to be the only out¬ standing social event of this year, but was, nevertheless a gala affair. A few of our boys were now coming into the limelight as athletes, namely, Enzo Bartelloni, Bill Cornetta, Jerry Dacey and Al Potenza. On March 12, 1945, we were overjoyed to hear the news that Mr. Doherty had returned from serving in the Armed Forces to resume his chair as principal. Mr. Doherty’s chair had been ably filled during his obsence by “Doc”, a beloved teacher and splendid instructor. “Doc” however was as pleased as we that our Principal had returned. Amid deafening cheers we welcomed Mr. Doherty back to the fold. Our Sophomore officers elected to serve this year were the following: President . Horace Mazzone Vice-President . Tony Velluti Secretary . Claire Rossetti Treasurer . Jeannette Spencer After years of faithful service our beloved friend and benefactor “Doc” Frazer retired from active duty. “Doc”, our Mr. Chips, will always hold a special place within our hearts. We are grateful for the privilege to know him. May his life be long and happy. He will always be a welcome guest in this school. October 19, 1945, was the da+e of our first school Social. On March 16, 1946 the St. Patrick’s Day Dance was held. We were now beginning to come into our own as upperclassmen. The day we received our class rings can be titled as a Red Letter Day. Next came one of the most important of all our social events, The Junior Prom. The Grand March was led by Al D’Aniello and Jeannette Spencer; President of the Senior Class and Treasurer of our Junior Class respectively. Miss Beane, Mrs. Wight, and members of the Junior Class made up a very effi¬ cient committee who planned this unusually glamorous party. Amid the setting of a favorite fairytale “Cinderella and The Glass-Slipper,” we Juniors and our Senior guests danced and chattered through a very happy evening. The hour glass of time had sifted away three happy years. We were now on the threshold of a new experience, anticipating a life as dignified Seniors. It was our turn now to invite the Freshmen and welcome them into this school as members of the student body. This affair was held September 20, 1947. Many of our Senior boys began to take active parts as athletes in various sports. Bill Cornetta, Enzo Bartelloni, Jerry Dacey, and Bob Stutman starred in Football, Basketball, and Baseball. Eddie Lamberto, Tony Velluti and Chuck Mazzone par¬ ticipated on the basketball court, while Carlo Geromini assisted among the baseball nine on the diamond. The Christmas Dance on December 20, 1947 was our next social. The Football Sweater Dance held on January 18, 1947, was a major success. Franklin, Mass. Page Thirty-nine Next came the Oskey on April 24 and 25, 1947, which was an overwhelming success. The Oskey took the form of a minstrel show. The role of James Doherty as interlocutor and the six Senior Endmen; “Eightball”—Danny Ranieri, “Manchester” —Jerome Baskin, “Lightning”—Jerry Dacey, “Jumbo”—Enzo Bartelloni, “Scully”— Carlo Geromini and “Rastus”—Chuck Mazzone, along with the specialty numbers and the chorus made the Oskey one of the best in many years. To Miss Beane we attribute much of the success of this production. During the four years she has given us freely of her untiring support and her unique talents. Hereto we must mention her close associate, Mr. Beane, who not only helped us with the production, but gave us the privilege of presenting to a first audience his song “I Kiss My Love Goodbye,” which we hope may win for him recognition. At this time, we wish to extend our gratitude to the underclassmen and all who assisted us in anyway to make this production a success. Just before our Spring vacation the scholastic honors were awarded by Mr. Doherty to the following students m recognition of work well and faithfully done: Valedictorian . Dorothy Maringas Salutatorian . Barbara Marco First Essay . Nora Boghosian Second Essay.Maxine Rosenbaum Third Essay . Joanne Loose Fourth Essay . Pauline Neelon Class Day Honors were bestowed by the class upon: Vilma Nasuti . Prophecy Claire Rossetti . Will James Doherty . Gifts Carlo Geromini . Oration And your Historian — Horace Mazzone The Junior Prom was held on May 23, 1947. The Grand March was led by Horace Mazzone and Jeanne Dorr; President of the Senior Class and Secretary of the Junior Class respectively. Amid an outdoor setting which always creates an atmos¬ phere of beauty and romance, we tripped the Light Fantastic. Delicious refresh¬ ments were served by charming hostesses in the “Garden Restaurant.” Thus another happy evening came to a close. To Miss Holmes and her Juniors we extend our sincere gratitude for making this enjoyable evening possible. Our last and final chapter is emblazoned with notes concerning Senior Week.

The Alumni Banquet was held on Tuesday Evening at which we were the hon¬ ored guests. This Wednesday evening we have assembled for the lighter tone of our com¬ mencement activities. Here we shall learn some of the characteristics of our class¬ mates that may give us a laugh and happy thoughts which we may carry with us through the years. Thursday evening the program will assume a more serious aspect. Our honor¬ ed Seniors will share with you their essays. We shall receive the reward for which we have been working—our coveted diplomas. The Senior Hop will be held at the Country Club on Friday Evening. Plans have been made to decorate the hall for the last party in which the Seniors will take part as a group. We are anticipating an evening of pleasure the memories of which we shall sincerely cherish. Members of the class of 1947, as your historian, may I extend my best wishes to you all, for a happy and prosperous future. Your Historian, Morace Mazzone Page Forty Franklin, Mass. CLASS WILL We, the class of 1947, of Franklin High School, in the county of Norfolk, in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, being of sound mind and body, and realizing our end to be near, do hereby make, publish, and declare the following as our last will and testament, declaring null and void all former instruments, promises, and wills heretofore published. First: Due to our financial condition, we humbly request that those to whom we owe debts will forget them as soon as possible and continue to be our everlasting friends. We therefore bequeath: TO THE TEACHERS: To Mr. Doherty—A bottle of Postum for his nerves so that he may put up with the incoming senior class. To Miss Beane—A big hand in appreciation for all she has done for us as class advisor during the past four years. To Miss Marrs—A pair of heavy bifocals so that she can find a few right answers on examination papers. To Miss Nichols—An ideal class for her homeroom next year to repair the damage done by the Senior girls. To ALL the Faculty we give our heartfelt appreciation for their tolerance of our many youthful manners and neglectful habits. TO THE JUNIORS: To Alberta Cataldo—The right to do all her shopping in the First National. We know she will enjoy this. To Raymond Mastromatteo—A tube of toothpaste to retain that eye-catching smile. To Barbara Ristaino—A recording of the song hit “My Bill.” To Donald Cataldo—Enzo Bartelloni’s place on the football team. To the Remaining Juniors we bequeath our knowledge of cosmetics. We know they will want to shine up the incoming Freshmen next year. TO THE SOPHOMORES: To George Landry—A bit of Jerry Dacey’s stately and dignified height so that he too may see what is going on. To Gerry Kenney—A free sea son ticket to all future basketball, football and baseball games at F.H.S. We believe it is sports in which Gerry is interested. Franklin, Mass. Page Forty-one To Roger Forgit—A whip so that he will be able to handle his “Lyons.” To The Remaining Sophomores we leave our priceless recipes on how to be absent from classes and pass difficult examinations. TO THE FRESHMEN: To “Jackie” Cornell—A ticket to Hollywood in recognition of his perfect impersonation of A1 Jolson. To Gloria Drowne—A jar of “Skippy” peanut butter. This seems to be her favorite. To Paul Morris—A book entitled, “How I Fascinate Women” written by Tony Velutti. Maybe this will help him overcome his shyness. To “Jackie” Ledbury—A torch—she seems to be carrying a big one. To The Webb Twins—A bottle of glue. May they always “stick” together. To The Remaining Freshmen we bequeath a collection of sob stories so that they will know how to get on the right side of Mr. Doherty. Lastly, on this 4th day of June, 1947, we, the latest of the graduating classes place our hand and seal on this sacred document and appoint those named below as executors of this our last will and testament Class of 1947 President—Horace Mazzone Vice-President—Carlo Geromini Scribe—Claire Rossetti Witnesses: Perk Q.

CLASS ORATION Yesterday - Tomorrow - Today Picture if you will, a vision. This vision rises before us like a puff of smoke. In it we see the past rising, as if we were in a dream. Once again we are in the almighty struggle for freedom. We hear the rolling of drums; the blare of bugles; the hustle and bustle of a country preparing for war. We see thousands of people gathered and in that crowd are the women, pale and excited; the men, their faces flushed; yes, and in that crowd we see the dead over whose graves flowers are now blooming. In this vision we cannot lose sight of them. We are with them as they are called to defend their country, we watch them as they are about to part with their loved ones. We see them strolling through the park with their sweethearts, we hear them promise everlasting love; we see the father bending over the cradle and kiss¬ ing his child; and we see others, younger boys, who have never left home before, leaving behind broken-hearted mothers. Again we see them as thev leave for the battlefield, to glory; to death. But what of these men who have sacrificed their all for freedom? They sleep now beneath a starry sky. In the midst of battle, through the horrible roar of con¬ flict they found the serenity of death. Let us give a cheer for the living, a tear for the dead. But now this vision fades and another appears; it is the vision of the future. In it we see the world filled with happy homes, families by the firesides, children laughing, mothers smiling, sweethearts happy. Yes, we see before us now a world at Deace, filled with love, music and truth. It is a world where no longer need a man beg for bread. It is a world of love and harmony. It is a world without disease of flesh or brain; it is a world of beauty, shapely and fair, the harmony of form and function; love of fellow man o’ersweeps the earth, and, high above, shining down on this beautiful world, is the eternal star of hope. This vision, as did the first, also vanishes, and now we are alone. We have seen the visions, one an ugly reminder of the past, the other the hope of the future. This vision of the future is not a dream; it is day by dav slowly becoming a reality, and America is expected to lead the way toward this realism. We have heard of and read of the millions of peoples from ravaged countries who have been under the tyrant’s yoke. The starving and undernourished must be fed; the beaten remains of a one-time happy peoDle must be made strong again. Now that the chains of the tyrant have been removed and these people have been made to see the light of freedom again, it does not mean that the work is over. The great¬ est tasks of all now confront us: the rebuilding of the bombed and devastated cities; the feeding and clothing of these people; the placing of a world police force in these foreign places; and a great step must be taken in the re-education of the youth of these lands. They must be taught the meaning of peace and harmony. America can¬ not rest until she has done her share in accomplishing these things. The people of America must set themselves up as an example to the rest of the world. The people of America must forget pettiness; strikes must be stifled; exployers and employees must work together for mutual benefit and not for individual gain; all the people, including the veteran, should work together for the benefit of their fellow man rather than trying to get more for less effort; parents, educators, the church and the state must units and provide a worthwhile education for the young people of the world so that they may be prepared for a place in life. Should anyone of these clas¬ ses decide to evade the responsibility and start in to criticize one another it will only demoralize and ruin the aim of the whole system of education. There are small but important things that each one of you in my audience, that each one of my fellow classmates, that I can do—and right here in Franklin, if that is to be our working field. Rejoice that our boys are home, that you are home, re¬ joice that there is work, make the work likeable, put others first and yourself second. If we and people like us in small communities can do this—and it is possible—then nations can do it, a universe can do it. Without big little contributions no nation can live harmoniously. Thus we are important in making a dream materialize. We have seen the vision of the past long enough. Must it remain with us for¬ ever? We, the younger generation of today will be the leaders of tomorrow. We must strive to do all in our power to make this dream of the future come to pass. It is up to every one of us to help kindle the spark that will light the everlasting star of peace and keep it aglow over our skies forever. It is to the younger generation that the people of America turn, but we cannot succeed without the help of our elders. On our shoulders lies the responsibility of making this vision of the future come true. Ours is a mighty mission; we must not fail! —Carlo Geromini, Class Oration Franklin, Mass.

As Co-Captains, they taught the new members all the intricacies in the art of cheering. And they were successful. With continuous work and cooperation the result has been a group of leaders that should make any school proud. Win or lose, our teams could always depend upon be ing backed to the end. Vim, vigor and vitality is the password of the six pretty lassies. Co-Captains—Jeanette Santoro, Anne Mahoney Marjorie Chittick Jeanne Dorr Barbara Genoa Gerry Kenney Page fifty-eight Franklin, Mass.

The program has proved very popular as shown by the large turnout for various activities. Each girl is given the chance to earn points which are accumulated over the four years toward the following awards: Numerals . 100 points Star . 250 points Letter . 200 points Chenille F. 350 points Over 350 points—Basketball pin with class numerals. The sports oll ' crcd over the period of a year are: Volleyball . 20 points Badminton . 20 points Field Hockey . 30 points Softball . 30 points Basketball . 30 points Posture . 30 points These sports are all extra-curricular and take place outside the regular gym classes. Regular officials, scorers, and recorders of attendance are also a part of the program. In order for a girl to receive her points, she must take part in three- fourths of the games her team plays. So let’s keep the ball rolling—for there’s fun in playing. Just ask any high school girl. Page Sixty-tvoo Franklin, Mass. FOOTBALL Mr. George Colbert returned this year to our school to assume position as head football coach. Anthony Pisini, who substituted during the war years, assisted Mr. Colbert in rounding out the enthusiastic squad. As there were only three veterans from last year, our coaches were forced to mold a good football aggregation out of practically all “green” hopefuls. Despite a poor record, the team, capably led by Co-Captains Bartelloni and Cornetta, provided worthy competition even in defeat. The contests with St. Patrick’s, Concord, and St. Mary’s were the highlights of the schedule. Outstanding Senior performers throughout the season were: Enzo Bartelloni, Billy Cornetta, Carlo Geromini , Chuck Mazzone, Danny Ranieri, Ace Stutman, Jerry Dacey, Eddie Lamberto, Bob Sederman, and Tony Velluti.

Page Sixty-three m BASKETBALL Determined to uphold the reputation of F.H.S., the 1947 basketball team came through with a well-played season. The boys tasted many defeats, but with their spirit, teamwork, and knowledge, they nobly defended the Blue and White. With one of the toughest schedules ever booked, the squad ended its season with 6 wins and 15 losses. The boys were invited to play at the South Shore Tourna¬ ment, where, though defeated, they showed everyone their great sportsmanship. Outstanding performers include Captain Jerry Dacey, Enzo Bartelloni, Bernie Doyle, Earl Pidgeon, Ace Stutman, Ray Mastrcmatteo, Alfred Martello, David Lincoln, and Julius Garelick.

JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL In coaching the Jay Vees, Mr. Beane proved his great ability in developing a good team with boys of all sizes. The material, which included Freshmen and Sophomores of unusual ability, promises future winning teams for Coach Beane and F.H.S. Outstanding players include Winston Van Deusen, Donald Cataldo, Dave Sewell, Dick Dupre, John Gentile, Arthur Watkins, Babe Howell, Bob Anderson, Ronald Gianetti, Francis Marco, and Marsden Anderson. Franklin, Mass. Page Sixty-five BASEBALL Enthusiasts from the Freshman through the Senior classes turned out “en masse” in answer to Coach Colbert’s call for 1947 baseball practice. The team was practically stripped of outstanding stars by last year’s graduation, but there are still quite a few experienced ballplayers. Young hopefuls are expected to fill capably the vacant position. In the few practice games played, the boys have shown great ability and a fine spirit. The players include Ace Stutman (Captain), Jerry Dacey, Julius Garelick, Donald Cataldo, Danny Ranieri, Carlo Geromini, Freddy Martello, Dick Yankee, Ray Mastromatteo, David Lincoln, and Enzo Bartelloni. The schedule is as follows: April 25—Bellingham at Franklin April 29—Canton at Canton May 2—St. Mary’s at Franklin May 5—Blackstone at Blackstone May 9—North Attleboi ' o at North May 14—Medway at Medway May 16—Canton at Franklin May 20—St. Mary’s at Milford May 23—North Attleboro at Franklin May 26—Blackstone at Franklin May 28—Medway at Franklin June 10—Bellingham at Bellingham Page Sixty-six Franklin, Mass.

The large turnout of underclassmen for private lessons from Mr. Howard proved that Franklin High again desired to support a musical aggregation. The remarkable progress gained by the band allowed them to entertain during Christmas week, prior to the Lions’ Club Minstrel Show, and at a Parent-Teachers’ Association. Their precision, intonation, and balance demonstrated to the public that the Lions’ Club investment was not futile. Members include: Donald Ristaino, Christian Pretto, Paul Remington, Lawrence Morrissey, John Doherty, Nathan Shaw, Fred Brown, Arthur Maringas, Paul Jones, Raymond Drowne, Carl Homer, Donald Sewell, John McCarthy, Frank DeGrazio, Janice McDonald, Doris Fertitta, Ralph Delucia, Louis Molinaro, Eddie McNally, Raymond Recchia, Donald Wambolt. Franklin, Mass. Page Sixty-nine THE GLEE CLUB The Glee Club, under the direction of Mrs. Marie S. Riley, proves to us that cooperation can result in pleasant harmony. This year, performing for a Community Service before the Alden Club, a Parent-Teachei ' s’ Association meeting and Senior Class night exercises, the club set an excellent example of the type of work that Franklin High School students are capable of achieving. Let us hope that the popularity of our Glee Club continues to grow. Lois Johnson provided piano accompaniment for the club. Members are as follows: Rose Marie Aimone Viola Biscotti Irene Dorr Jeanne Dorr Peggy Eastman S n lly Eastman Barbara Elder Virginia Ellsworth Ruth Emmons Gertrude Foss Joan Guinard Grace Marie Howard Joan Jewett Anita Johnson June Johnson Claire Johnston Mabel King Jacky Ledbury June Yankee Beverly Mackintosh Barbara Nasuti Barbara Peterson Janet Saunders Ellen Simpson Claire Thibedeau Louise Thibedeau Marlene Turcotte Marianne Verna Page Seventy Franklin, Mass.

Page Seventy-one THE OSKEY MINSTREL SHOW Miss Beane has done it again! This year’s production of the Oskey, under the direction of Miss Alice Beane, resulted in complete success. Although proceeds of the show go to aid publication of the senior class year¬ book, many of the outstanding performers were found to be underclassmen. Jokes, songs, and dance routines by the senior endmen and interlocutor kept the show moving at a rapid pace. Capacity audiences on both production nights enjoyed the expert ad libbing provided by these stars. The large chorus proved a very valuable asset to the show with lively songs and added pleasant harmony to many of the specialty numbers. Success in such a large undertaking as a minstrel show could never be achieved without the complete cooperation among all participants as was shown in the pres¬ entation of the Oskey Minstrel Show.
